Haha old blokes are alright. i wanna be one when I grow up :P

Sounds like a good idea though. I know I've met a few people around my age, guys and girls, who would've loved it when they first got into 4x4ing. Hell, I still would!

Nothing wrong with old guys - I am still just a big kid :-)
I am told the first 50 years of childhood are the hardest, guess I will find out later this year..

Hahaha Dree, who else is gonna spend 3 hours trying to get me out the middle of a creek narrow enough to jump over?
That homebrew does sound good though. only downside to driving I've found, can't drink. Oh, and the money side of it (but we keep that a secret).

Pete, I reckon if you've made it this far, you should have it down pretty pat by now. Then you can let it all go again :D

In seriousness, yeah, a new person meet up would be nice, and it would be great to meet a few blokes our age. But not limiting it by age would be great, just so much more chance to meet good people!

Yeah mate, I reckon they would. Coz at the end of the day, we're all just kids wanting to go play outside in the dirt :rolleyes:

But I get what you mean.

Yep no offense taken on the age thing, I think I was young once, just can't remember - LOL
Must admit that I am getting to the stage of not wanting to do the rough stuff anymore and more interested in checking out the sites or sitting back enjoying a good chat with a few mates or new friends..
just what we did last time I went up to Janowen Hills, played around in the morning checked out a few tracks but gave the hard stuff a miss, then after lunch just sat around while the other guys went out to play.. worked for me.

Hi All,

Me and the missus have just moved to Brisbane and we are looking to join a 4wd club. I didn't want to open a new post but just wondering if anyone could recommend a club that fits our bill. We are in our late 20's early 30's and like to go to places to camp and tour. Not really into the rough stuff. The main reason I have got my 4wd is to go to see the nice places. Into long distance touring as well.

We are looking for a club that caters for couples/ families and not so much just single blokes getting on the piss every night they camp (no offence I was the same at some stage, but things change in life). I obviously do like to have a few and chat around the campfire.
